The internet has gifted us with another beaut! For those of you out there that have ever said to yourselves, "I love Anne Geddes' anthropomorphized dog photos: why isn't there something equivocal with infants?" this is the post for you!
Behold author, illustrator, blogger, photographer and mommy Adele Enersen's new book: "When My Baby Dreams." Yes, that's Enersen's baby Mila featured in a number of cloth tableaux looking very much like a character on a living felt board.
"I started making the pictures in June, 2010, when Mila was just 2 weeks old." Enersen explains on her website of the genesis of her series. "I think all new parents go crazy with baby photos of their first child—maybe we were just a little bit crazier!" Perhaps, but who are we to judge? "I often found myself staring at my sleeping baby instead of sleeping myself. We wanted to capture our memories in photos but we realized that we just had a lot of pictures of Mila sleeping. One night, she fell asleep on a blanket on the floor in a funny position, with her arm stretched out, and she looked like a little fencer. My husband, Lasse, and I were laughing that she was probably dreaming about exactly that, so Lasse, who’s a film composer, placed his conductor’s baton in her hand and we took the very first 'daydream' picture."
Can't. Look. Away.
